Sanctuary & therapeutic connection

The Berkshire Animal Connection Centre (BACC) provides a sanctuary to animals, and a safe space for people to benefit from therapeutic interaction with them.

Sanctuary

The majority of our animals come to us unwanted, abused or abandoned. We provide them with an environment that allows them to thrive naturally under our care for the rest of their lives.

Equine Assisted Services

The calming natures of the animals at BACC can support people suffering from a range of emotional, mental, physical and social problems. Building relationships with our animals enables therapeutic healing and wellbeing, under the guidance of qualified facilitators. In 2024, we will expand the Charitable Objectives to include our long-awaited vision of offering Equine Assisted Services (EAS).

HUGE SHOUT OUT! To our AMAZING Volunteers for stepping up and stepping in over the last two weeks. To our DofE students and other young volunteers for getting all the mucking out done AND all three goat houses mucked out and to our regular adult volunteers- Karen, Holly, Josh, Georgia Ian, Danielle, Peter, Ellis, Wendy 1 and Wendy 2, Ankea, Sam, Matthew, Tracey, Suzanne, Stephen, Helen, Catherine and my husband Mike for all their hard work putting in new paddocks and electric fencing so we can move horses for some vital field maintenance on Monday and Tuesday this coming week. You guys totally rock and are part of our #dreamteam . We simply could not do it without you and tomorrow we have more volunteers coming to help out to move horses and get everyone settled before the digger and tractor start on site.

Volunteering at BACC can be hard work but we have a fantastic team in place with a 'can do' attitude. We have debates about the way to do things and what would work best, we work together to achieve our goal and we have a wonderful closeness and camaraderie and a whole lot of laughs.

So if you are a DofE student Year 9 or older, or an adult with horse/animal experience and would like to join our volunteer team then we would absolutely love to hear from you.

Please email claire@animalconnectioncentre.org and arrange a visit.

Plus some cute pictures to temp you to visit!!
